Who is this class for: This course is designed to give you a comprehensive view of the cloud computing landscape. our assumption is that you already have a working knowledge of computer science. Even though the course does not involve much of programming exercises (we do have one tutorial you can try to follow and learn), we expect the student to have some prior exposure to computers particularly in enterprise backend and server environments.
